A favorite topic of mine. HEB is king around here. A store that’s fun to shop at; unique to each neighborhood with a ton of variety and great prices.

There’s also a series of farmers markets across my city put on at different locations throughout the week. Typically we’ll shop for produce there once a week and then head to HEB to get meal ingredients later. Super H Mart is another fun one, but we only go there once a month or so (whenever we need taro root and rice.)

When I travel I like to step inside a regional grocery store and check it out.

we usually hit 2 farmers markets per week..one of them is just 3 blocks away

like you, I have a "hobby" of going into local grocery stores when traveling to look at prices and to see if they have that isle that has stuff you just don't see in your local..

Publix and The Fresh Market are my go-to's here. Also, we have a local Asian market called Hong Kong Market that has a great selection of all Asian groceries. Kind of like a mini Uwajimaya in Seattle.

I love Asian supermarkets. Everything is colorful and full of energy, plus they typically have great food courts.

We’re going to Dallas in a couple of days and shopping one there. I have low expectations compared to my Super H Mart, but maybe I’ll be surprised.
